    It would be a very cool "job" for him. My only concern is his left front lower leg, as it is a little turned due to his prior constant circling. Our vet is seeing him Thursday, so I will have more information on it then.

So in a sense, it is actually better that we rescued him, versus a full-blown horse rescue, as now he won't be taking up the space/resources that full-blown horse rescue could be spending on other horses.
    Then thank you for taking him, you have my support.

    I would disagree, but that's another conversation.

    I love how, at this point in his wee little horse phase, he kinda' looks like a Donkey! So darn precious!

    I know! I visited him one time and he was all fluffy, then then next time he was shaved. I was like "aw... now he looks like... a donkey....". Haha!

    He will be working on groundwork for a long time, getting used to all sorts of situations and desensitizing, and just be a horse with his friends in a paddock (once he is weaned). When he is old enough, I would like to start him under saddle if his legs allow it and if he enjoys it. Dressage seems like a great option for him if it works out!

    Big thumbs up to you for taking on this challenge. I as you would not have left this guy just because he is blind, he can still hear you right? It's not as though all senses have gone.

    He has been born blind so knows no different, he will learn to rely on other senses and become a wonderful and sensitive horse.

    Keep us updated with lots of photos and how he is getting on
